This is possible in theory, but in practice I don't know that anybody
has tried it and reported back.

The basic idea is to make a single library and either rely on libltdl
to find the symbols there.  In this scenario you'd still need to
comment out the loadLibrary() calls.

See to see exactly how
symbols are found at runtime.  Basically we iterate over all known
libraries and ask libltdl about them.
